Stand Still For a Second or Forever
Summon the ideas that will stand for the first glimpse and for many more looks. Everyday or just painting? A pose is packaged lightening.
The image is the composed thoughts of the artist. The painter is the poser.
The elements of a pose, like the features on the face all act together in an expression. Stillness and flatness are image where silhouette is everyday life. Her face is flattened and wiped flat of features so it has the weight of a leg or a knee or silhouette.
